and most of the energy that comes into san francisco is piped in from other places so we have to look at everything from a regional perspective. in terms of what we're doing with our infrastructure, we look at many risks to our systems to improve their reliability, both gas and electric. while we talk about earthquakes quite a bit, we look more at ground movement in general, whether it be earthquake related, land slide related, but in terms of our reliability all those risks are looked at and there's on-going efforts to increase the reliability of both the electric system and the gas system throughout the san francisco area and through the northern and system part of our state. we have hundreds of millions of dollars of pipeline replacement happening which is a major risk in a major earthquake. most people are aware in loma prieta the pipeline held pretty well but we are trying to build in a better manner to withdraw earthquakes. on the electric side, things are pretty well proat the timed already. things shut themselves off. depending on the magnitude of the earthquake, it could
environmental windows and save a lot of time and energy and money. it turns out it's in many cases more expensive because the cycle of replacing dual glazing, you have to pull this out and replace it again. the overall life cycle cost is quite high. dual glazing is getting better but we still see a lot of failures of seals in glazing. do you see that? here. looking up close you can see. that moisture in there is not going away. what do you have to do to fix this? >> take it out to reseal it. so take it out, either reseal it or replace -- yeah. here also along the same lines, dan mentioned that u.v. resistance issues, you know, sight in degrades a lot of material -- sunlight degrades a lot of materials. it's going to degrade caulking and paint and it's going to degrade the vinyl on the sides of windows and this is once again part of this dourability conundrum. how long is this environmental going to last that supports this new window? and what do we do to maintain that? i brought along some armor ol. it has a u.v. resistant compound in it. so i think as part of your home maintenance, if
be a wash but we may see big changes with energy or climate change or carbon footprint and those kinds of things approximate so it's pretty exiting and shortly we will be able to come and present the results of the beta test that is we have done so you can get an idea of what it would look like and how we will look at things in the future. >> part of my question goes to the enact that we don't typically get involved in a lot of questions about which technology will be used and in the example here it looked as though it was a pretty good choice of what will be taken and it's one area better than all of the other why would you urge some thought that when you have -- that are not that clear and there are clear trade-off that is somebody has has to make between the -- a project and it's social benefits if those differences are not clear where they are significant, they should come to the commission for discussion because i'm not sure what the break is on that at what dollar level or level of significance how you describe that but you probably know it when you see it my guess so, i think
